Joe Biden — The Hollowed Out Shell of a Once Mediocre Man

Someone needs to make a video like this classic, replacing “All Your Base Are Belong to Us” with “Let’s Go, Brandon!”

Bitter laughter we’ve had aplenty, every time Joe “President” Biden forgets his lines, or where he is, or with whom he is talking. Then we cackle with a deep, vindictive glee. You wanted the toughest job on earth, now gag on it, Grandpa Simpson, we say to ourselves. No ice cream for you today. 

The Hollowed Out Shell of a Once Mediocre Man

Now, that vents some resentment about this imposter squatting in the White House—this hollowed-out shell of a once mediocre hireling, washed up there by a tsunami of illegal, unchecked ballots, at our oligarchy’s behest. Now they’re stuck with him, and all the crazy promises they made, and the virus panic they unleashed.

When their plans blow up in his face, we snicker. Every time the Bidenist Occupational Government blunders, and another “domestic terrorist” gets exposed as a Fed infiltrator, we flash a smile of steel. We see on Brian Stelter’s colicky baby face the frustrated tantrums that must afflict The Secret Committee Formerly Known As Joe Biden (TSCFAJB, Tuss-KUFF-ka-jab). All those deep state  hacks who think they’re a “brain trust,” bungling this goat rodeo, month after month after month. And they know we are laughing at them.

Prices of Nearly Everything Now Surging

Sat, 2021-10-16 10:08 +0000

The following article was provided by Mike Gleason, a Director with Money Metals Exchange.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

A big week for precious metals markets as inflation pressures push consumer prices to painful new heights.

On Thursday, the U.S. Labor Department reported that inflation at the wholesale level is up 8.6% from a year ago. That’s the steepest annual advance since the data started being reported.

Of course, Americans who have shopped at a grocery store recently or tried to rent or buy a car don’t need to read a government report to discover that prices are surging. In many respects, inflation is even worse than reported officially.

The economy was supposed to get back to normal this year. But instead, supply disruptions are spreading and driving shortages of various consumer products from office furniture to computer chips.

News Report #1: Massive supply chain disruptions, empty shelves in stores all across the country and rising prices for what's in stock.

News Report #2: The supply shortages and the consequent shortage of goods delivered everywhere has caused prices to spike up.

News Report #3: Annual inflation now at a 13-year high. Prices for beef and bacon, used cars, gas, even furniture, all up double digits.

News Report #4: This year has seen record-breaking price jumps for children's shoes, up nearly 12% furniture, up more than 11%.

News Report #5: All these things are going up too: car rentals, they're up already almost 43%, if you can even find one. Gas, that's true. Gas up 42%. Steak is up 22%. Lodging is up almost 20%.

Bloomberg Commentor: Unless you embrace the analytically meaningless phase of persistently transitory, which I've heard, persistently transitory, this inflation round is not transitory.

Things will likely get even worse for Americans struggling with costs of living heading into the winter. The U.S. Energy Information Administration projects households will see a jump of over 50% on their heating bills compared to last winter.

Those who use propane, heating oil, or natural gas to keep their homes warm will likely see the sharpest increases. Prices for energy commodities have been rising relentlessly over the past few months.

Precious metals markets may now be ready to play catch-up, although they are taking a breather here on Friday.

This week gold is up 1.0% to bring spot prices to $1,780 per ounce, despite it pulling back a good bit here today. Silver shows a weekly gain of 3.1% trade at $23.46 an ounce. Platinum prices are pushing higher by 2.9% to check in at $1,069. And finally, palladium is essentially unchanged now since last Friday’s close to command $2,113 an ounce.

Metals markets reacted positively to minutes released Wednesday from the Federal Reserve’s latest meeting. Officials signaled they may begin tapering back their $120 billion in monthly bond purchases as soon as November.

They will have to start making at least some gestures toward reducing monetary stimulus if they want to retain whatever credibility they have left when it comes to inflation.

Although some investors fear Fed tapering will crash the markets, the early stages of a Fed tightening campaign tend to be favorable. Metals markets in particular often rally as the Fed begins hiking rates – contrary to what many expect to be the case.

Of course, right now central bankers are merely contemplating pulling back on bond purchases. Rate hikes aren’t even on the table yet.

The time for metals investors to be fearful of the Fed is when it may be getting ready to push interest rates above the inflation rate. If that ever occurred, rates would turn positive in real terms.

Dollar-denominated debt instruments would be viable, at least theoretically, as a place to preserve wealth. Hard assets as alternative stores of value would be vulnerable to being dumped by investors who could get compensated for holding paper instead.

But at the moment low-yielding debt instruments are more like certificates of confiscation. They are virtually guaranteed to take away purchasing power from holders when measured against current inflation realities.

Inflation risks and other risks face holders of deposit accounts at banks. For one. the IRS is pushing a sweeping plan to track all funds over $600 flowing into and out of bank accounts.

The agency’s supposed objective is to identify wealthy tax cheats. But IRS snooping at this level could lead to harassment of millions of Americans who have committed no tax fraud.

That’s just the beginning of the Biden administration’s plans for a “Great Reset” of the banking system. President Joe Biden’s nomination to the head the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency, Saule Omarova, wants to “end banking as we know it.”

She advocates a form of socialized banking in which private bank deposits would be brought under the direct control of the central bank.

She calls her radical new banking regime “the People’s Ledger.”

Also dubbed “FedAccounts,” they would presumably be denominated in "FedCoin" – the central bank digital currency being developed behind the scenes at the Federal Reserve to enable greater tracking of and control over citizens’ financial transactions.

Although socialized banking may seem like a remote possibility in the United States of America, a financial crisis could quickly turn a central planner’s pipe dream into reality.

For example, a cascading series of bank failures that threatens to bankrupt the FDIC and wipe out millions of depositors could give the Fed all the impetus it needs to take over the entire banking system.

Holding hard assets outside the banking system may be the best form of insurance against risks within the banking system. And precious metals, being tangible forms of money, are at the foundation of any strategy to protect against risks inherent in the fiat currency regime.

Long before the Federal Reserve System came into being in 1913, gold and silver backed the U.S. dollar. And if at some point the Fed and its unlimited supplies of unbacked dollars lose all credibility with the public, precious metals will again provide people with ledgers of real value.

Well, that will do it for this week. Be sure to check back next Friday for our next Weekly Market Wrap Podcast. Until then this has been Mike Gleason with Money Metals Exchange, thanks for listening and have a weekend everybody.

An Emboldened, Super-Funded IRS to Target Bank Depositors

Fri, 2021-10-15 12:01 +0000

The following article was provided by Stefan Gleason, President of Money Metals Exchange.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Insidious plans are afoot in Washington to give IRS officials another $80 billion for auditors and then unleash them on bank account holders.

New, heavy-handed IRS and Federal Reserve controls along with other threats to financial privacy highlight the importance of holding wealth outside the banking system.

This week, Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen appeared on CBS Evening News to defend the IRS’s sweeping plan to track all funds flowing into and out of bank accounts, except for those holding less than $600. Yellen claimed the aim is to combat “tax fraud and cheating” by “high-income individuals.”

As to how a $600 threshold will target the super-wealthy more so than the middle class, Yellen failed to articulate. But IRS snooping at this level could lead to harassment of millions of Americans while ensnaring people who are doing hourly side gigs to feed their families rather than people who are hiding millions of taxable dollars from the government.

Banks are opposing the proposed bank account reporting requirement.

Perhaps the focus will be narrowed somewhat before IRS account monitoring is fully implemented.

But it won’t be the end of the Biden administration’s plans for a “Great Reset” of the banking system. It will be just the beginning.

President Joe Biden’s nomination to the head the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency, Saule Omarova, wants to “end banking as we know it.”

In her academic work, Omarova has expressed admiration for Karl Marx and sympathy for the Soviet Union. She has also advocated a form of socialized banking in which private bank deposits would be brought under the direct control of the central bank.

She calls her radical new banking regime “the People’s Ledger.”

Also dubbed “FedAccounts,” they would presumably be denominated in "FedCoin" – the central bank digital currency being developed behind the scenes at the Federal Reserve to enable greater tracking of and control over citizens’ financial transactions.

The Fed has already strayed far afield from its dual mandate of price stability and full employment. It now sees fit to bail out politically connected companies, monetize government debt, promote critical race theory, and reverse "global warming."

As for price stability, Fed Chairman Jerome Powell has made a mockery out of that part of the dual mandate by deliberately engineering a surge in inflation which he calls (without evidence) “transitory.”

Powell insists the Fed “has the tools” to fight inflation. But it apparently doesn’t have the will to pull them out right now.

Instead, Fed bureaucrats are fighting culture wars against their critics in what Senator Pat Toomey (R-PA) calls "woke mission creep."

According to FoxBusiness, the Philadelphia Federal Reserve is promoting critical race theory through its “Reinventing Our Communities” program and disparaging people who argue for race-neutral policies. The Philly Fed specifically links to materials that attack Manhattan Institute Senior Fellow Christopher Rufo, a leading opponent of Marxist-inspired critical race theory.

Rufo responded wryly via Tweet: “Still laughing that the Federal Reserve is promoting ‘decolonizing the atmosphere’ and targeting me for ‘shutting down critical racial equity work.’ Focus on inflation, you idiots.”

Unfortunately, there is no political mechanism for the public to hold the Fed accountable when fails to adhere to its statutory mandate.

Fed officials claim they must maintain their “independence.” Toward that end, they employ professional lobbyists to ensure that any legislative efforts to audit or bring greater transparency to the central bank’s activities fail.

The most powerful mechanism available to citizens who are “Fed up” with inflation and the ever-expanding functions of the central bank is to de-dollarize their personal finances.

Holding large amounts of cash in bank deposits is becoming increasingly risky. Not only to customers risk significant erosions of their purchasing power due to inflation; they also risk being singled out by the IRS or becoming unwitting holders of a “FedAccount.”

Although socialized banking may seem like a remote possibility in the United States of America, a financial crisis could quickly turn a central planner’s pipe dream into reality.

For example, a cascading series of bank failures that threatens to bankrupt the FDIC and wipe out millions of depositors could give the Fed all the impetus it needs to take over the entire banking system.

Holding hard assets outside the banking system may be the best form of insurance against risks within the banking system. And precious metals, being tangible forms of money, are at the foundation of any strategy to protect against risks inherent in the fiat currency regime.

Long before the Federal Reserve System came into being in 1913, gold and silver backed the U.S. dollar. And if at some point the Fed and its unlimited supplies of unbacked dollars lose all credibility with the public, precious metals will again provide people with ledgers of real value.

Bought Not Stolen

So says the New York Post, but I'll stick with stolen.  Mark Zuckerberg spent $419 million to get Biden elected.

The 2020 election wasn’t stolen — it was likely bought by one of the world’s wealthiest and most powerful men pouring his money through legal loopholes.

A TDS* Defense for Treason?

Wed, 2021-10-13 20:11 +0000

A liberal/progressive Annapolis couple has been charged with attempting to sell secret information about U.S. nuclear submarines to a foreign power.

The couple was busted by federal agents after delivering a memory card to a dead drop location in south-central Pennsylvania. They had allegedly proposed a payment of $100,000 in cryptocurrency in exchange for providing information to the foreign country, which has yet to be revealed.

The Times report described Ms. Toebbe as a "strong feminist and very liberal" academic who was "taken aback" by former president Donald Trump's election in 2016, and "mentioned several times that she was considering moving to Australia."

Toebbe's radicalization as a member of the anti-Trump #Resistance appears to have been a significant factor in compelling her to betray the United States. "She said she couldn't stand the current state of politics," one of her former students told the Times, which found no evidence that the couple was in financial distress, suggesting an alternative motive for their actions.

The Rigged Game

Wed, 2021-10-13 11:40 +0000

During the first decade of this century, the internet was a welcome, long awaited bypass around the corporate media news filter.  By the end of the next decade, internet tech giants had become the news filter.

From the New York Post, an excerpt from Mollie Hemingway's book, Rigged: How the Media, Big Tech, and the Democrats Seized Our Elections:

Donald Trump’s 2016 victory was a shock to much of the country, but Silicon Valley took it especially hard. The progressive bastion of San Francisco had turned tech companies from libertarian idealists into liberal crusaders. The industry as a whole felt complicit in Donald Trump’s rise and was intent on doing everything in its power to suppress his voice and those of his supporters.

From the beginning, the tech overlords were plotting how to strike back.

In one meeting, Google founder Sergey Brin suggested that “Jigsaw,” a project Google had developed to combat Islamic terror propaganda, could be used to shape the opinions of Trump voters. By the time Trump was inaugurated, a former Google engineer had told Breitbart reporter Allum Bokhari that activists within the company had formed a working group to brainstorm ways to use Google’s resources to undermine the Trump administration.

Another Google engineer wanted to sabotage Trump’s phone, which ran on Google’s Android operating system, as well as ban the Gmail accounts of senior Trump administration officials. An employee in Google’s advertising department personally referred purchasers of Google ads to the Web site of Sleeping Giants, an activist group that encourages boycotts of conservative news outlets.

It wasn’t any better over at Facebook, where some employees literally took a week off to grieve.

Soon after the election, BuzzFeed was reporting, “Facebook employees have formed an unofficial task force to question the role their company played in promoting fake news in the lead-up to Donald Trump’s victory in the US election last week.”

The group was operating in open defiance of CEO Mark Zuckerberg, who said the idea that Facebook had unfairly tilted the election in Trump’s favor was “crazy.”

By December 2016, Zuckerberg had caved. Facebook adopted a new policy of trying to combat the alleged “fake news” that troubled Facebook’s left-wing employees. The tech giant would start paying media outlets to “fact-check” news on the site. With media revenue steadily declining — in no small part because Facebook had radically disrupted the traditional journalistic business models — once reputable news organizations signed up to participate in the fact-checking program.

Media outlets that were supposed to be objectively covering Facebook were now on Facebook’s payroll, given the power to determine all the news that was fit to print.

Whether or not the tech companies wanted to admit it, much of Silicon Valley’s anger over Trump’s victory was about their inability to control American opinion.

Trump's CIA Director Mike Pompeo Was Obsessed With Julian Assange — Why?

Tue, 2021-10-12 21:04 +0000

From Sundance at The Last Refuge: 

As a person who has researched this three year fiasco; including the ridiculously false 2016 Russian hacking/interference narrative: “17 intelligence agencies”, Joint Analysis Report (JAR) needed for Obama’s anti-Russia narrative in December ’16; and then a month later the ridiculously political Intelligence Community Assessment (ICA) in January ’17; this timing against Assange is too coincidental.

It doesn’t take a deep researcher to see the aligned Deep State motive to control Julian Assange because the Mueller report was dependent on Russia cybercrimes, and that narrative is contingent on the Russia DNC hack story which Julian Assange disputes.

The Interview Went All Over The Place

Tue, 2021-10-12 12:37 +0000

From Mollie Hemingway's interviews with Donald Trump:

In early February, political reporter and Nancy Pelosi biographer Molly Ball published a Time magazine article detailing how, as she put it, “a well-funded cabal of powerful people, ranging across industries and ideologies, working together behind the scenes to influence perceptions, change rules and laws, steer media coverage and control the flow of information” had rigged the election to secure a Biden victory.

While she was whitewashing what the cabal had done – asserting unconvincingly that it wasn’t rigging but “fortifying” — she revealed that these powerful elites, funded by Facebook billionaire Mark Zuckerberg, had been able to embed left-wing activists into election offices to assist Democrats with their get-out-the-vote efforts and the Democrats’ push for mail-in balloting.

Despite her best efforts to make it seem less nefarious than it was, it confirmed Republicans’ worst suspicions that things hadn’t been free or fair. Likewise, Trump was pleased to be vindicated in his view that, well, a “well-funded cabal of powerful people” had in fact rigged the election.

“The only good article I’ve read in Time magazine in a long time — that was actually just a piece of the truth because it was much deeper than that — about how they stole the election,” he said. “They just couldn’t keep it in. You know what I mean? They just couldn’t keep it in. They had to let it out a little bit,” he said.

My book explains, among other things, how Zuckerberg spent hundreds of millions of dollars targeting Democrat counties in ways that significantly drove up Biden’s margin, enabling his victory. The funds weren’t for campaign spending, mind you, but for a targeted private takeover of the government administration of election operations.

Cruelty in Support of a Myth

Fri, 2021-10-08 10:46 +0000

The Biden DOJ is ruining lives to perpetuate the myth that Capitol Police Officer Brian Sicknick was killed by Trump supporters on January 6.

What Tanios also did not know at the time was he and his friend, Julian Khater, would become the scapegoats for one of the biggest lies about the Capitol protest; the claim that Trump cultists killed a cop in cold blood on January 6.

Reports of Sicknick’s death in the immediate aftermath of the Capitol protest served two purposes: to bury the news that a Capitol Police officer had killed an unarmed female Trump supporter in the building on January 6, and to fuel more public outrage about a “deadly insurrection.”

Rule of Thumb:

Fri, 2021-10-08 09:46 +0000

When a Republican is in the White House, dissent is the highest form of patriotism.
When a Democrat is in the White House, dissent is treason.

The American Political Science Association has barred the Claremont Institute from hosting in-person group discussions at its annual APSA Annual Meeting & Exhibition because Trump lawyer John Eastman was participating in some of its events.  Organizers said they feared "protests and unrest."

A former APSA member who was Eastman's roommate in graduate school called the association "cowardly weasels" for deplatforming Claremont rather than providing security at its events.

The discussions APSA itself hosted were "dreadfully boring or stupid," political scientist John West, formerly of Seattle Pacific University, said in a phone interview. The related-group discussions such as Claremont's were the best reason to attend.

APSA officials didn't respond to Just the News queries seeking evidence of planned disruptions if Claremont's events went forward in person. Drezner, a Tufts University professor, said Smith only cited social media chatter and "irate" emails and voicemails, and Claremont's Williams said local law enforcement declined to get involved.

Expose the Left at Your Peril

Thu, 2021-10-07 12:33 +0000

Yes, the Democrats benefit from illegal immigration, the more there is the more they benefit.

Like Prohibition-era bootleggers unloading barrels of whiskey in broad daylight, the anti-borders Left has been flouting the law in public for decades as it enables a vast and profitable human trafficking operation through south Texas. In today’s gaslit, no-accountability culture, the problem isn’t finding the crime, but in naming the perpetrators and exposing their motives. 

Financial gain is obviously a big incentive in the immigration scam against America. Numerous beneficiaries include the cartels that traffic the people, “charities” that get a piece of the action for moving the human cargo throughout the country, and stateside businesses that reap the benefit of cheap foreign labor. 

These parties seem largely indifferent to being called out for their roles in the scam. It comes from a confidence in knowing that, regardless of who knows what, the operation will roll on without so much as a speed bump. 

Calling out the political actors and their motives is a different animal altogether.

But not much in the way of journalistic effort has gone into stories that expose the financing of illegal immigration.  Who paid the freight when thousands of poverty stricken Haitians turned up in Del Rio, Texas?  How did they get there from Haiti?  They didn't walk.

Highlights of a Coverup — A Secret Teleconference

Sun, 2021-10-03 13:37 +0000

The Epoch Times has put together an extensive timeline of the coronavirus outbreak and a second timeline describing a teleconference that sought to dispel any theories that the outbreak originated at the Wuhan Institute of Virology.  Here are some highlights from Epoch's teleconference timeline.

January 31, 2020, 5:23 PM

Dr. Anthony Fauci receives an email from Jeremy Farrar, the head of a British nonprofit, asking to speak to Fauci “this evening.” A call is arranged by Fauci’s assistant, Patricia Conrad.

January 31, 2020, 5:57 PM

Farrar sends a follow-up email asking Fauci to call Kristian Andersen, a professor at Scripps Research. Farrar informs Fauci that the three people who will be on the call are Andersen, Bob Garry, and Eddie Holmes. The three would later write “The Proximal Origin of SARS-CoV-2” letter, which dismissed the lab leak theory.

January 31, 2020, 5:57 PM

An article is published in Science addressing concerns about experiments conducted at the Wuhan Institute of Virology. The article indirectly links to a 2015 Nature article detailing gain-of-function experiments conducted by Shi Zheng-Li, a director at the institute. Shi’s research had been funded by Fauci’s National Institutes of Health (NIH) and National Institute of Allergy & Infectious Disease (NIAID).

January 31, 2020, 10:32 PM

Andersen replies to Fauci’s email and acknowledges that features of the virus look potentially engineered. Earlier in the day, however, Andersen had sent a tweet rejecting Sen. Tom Cotton’s (R-Ark.) theory that the virus could have stemmed from the Wuhan Institute of Virology. It would later be revealed by Farrar that Andersen was initially 60 to 70 percent sure the virus came from a laboratory.

February 1, 2020, 10:34 AM

Farrar sends out a group email announcing a 2 p.m. conference call, along with an agenda setting out “desired outcomes” to be discussed “in total confidence.” Including Farrar, a total of 13 people are listed on the teleconference agenda.

February 1, 2020, 11:47 AM

Auchincloss responds to Fauci in a separate email thread: “The paper you sent me says the experiments were performed before the gain of function pause but have since been reviewed and approved by NIH. Not sure what that means since Emily is sure that no Coronavirus work has gone through the P3 framework. She will try to determine if we have any distant ties to this work abroad.”  (My emphasis.)

Note:  The P3 Framework is the Framework for Guiding Funding Decisions about Proposed Research Involving Enhanced Potential Pandemic Pathogens at the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.  Anthony Fauci repeatedly denied that NIH provided funding for gain-of-function research.  However, The Intercept recently reported that EcoHealth Alliance received funding from NIH, which it passed along to the Wuhan Institute of Virology, where it was used for bat coronavirus research.  Did the NIH launder its gain-of-function research financing for Wuhan through EcoHealth Alliance?

February 1, 2020, 1:43 PM

Marion Koopmans, who oversees a Dutch lab that was previously involved with gain-of-function experiments, sends an email to Farrar and copies in Fauci and other members of the call. (The body of Koopmans’s email is fully redacted.)

February 1, 2020, 2:00 PM

The teleconference begins.

Andersen tells the teleconference group that he’s “60 to 70 percent” sure the virus came from a laboratory. Holmes tells the teleconference group he’s “80 percent sure the virus came out of a lab.”

According to Robert Garry, the first draft of “The Proximal Origin” paper, which pushed the natural origins theory, is also finished on this day. Four of the five authors of this article attend the teleconference.

February 1, 2020, 3:07 PM

The teleconference ends.

February 2, 2020, 4:48 AM

Collins sends an email regarding a potential meeting with WHO’s Tedros to Farrar, and copies in Fauci and Tabak: “I’m available any time today except 3:15 - 5:45 pm EST (on a plane) for a call to Tedros . Let me know if I can help get through his thicket of protectors.”

February 2, 2020, 10:28 AM

Farrar sends an email to Fauci and Collins, and copies in Tabak, with a link to a ZeroHedge article: “Tedros and Bernhard have apparently gone into conclave .... they need to decide today in my view. If they do prevaricate, I would appreciate a call with you later tonight or tomorrow to think how we might take forward . Meanwhile .... https://www.zerohedge.com/geopolitical/coronavirus-contains-hiv-insertions-stoking-fears-over-artificially-created-bioweapon.” ZeroHedge would be banned one day later by Twitter, on Feb. 3, 2020.

February 3, 2020

Tedros publicly states, “[We must] combat the spread of rumours & misinformation.”

February 3, 2020

ZeroHedge is banned by Twitter.

There is much more.  Follow the link and scroll down to get to the teleconference timeline.  Fascinating stuff.
